according to you who does not understand plain simple english.
again....paste the exact article that explains where congress must fund PBS.
A hint....it is right after it explains congress must fund glen Beck's new cable station.
and right after it must fund the big 10 network.
Once again, because you clearly don't have even the most rudimentary of reading comprehension skills, nor do you possess the most basic understanding of Congressional authority to tax and spend under the Constitution, here you go:

Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Congress MUST fund pbs. I never stated that it did.

Article 1 Section 8 does however give Congress the authority to fund PBS through the formation of the CPB, which is exactly what it did.

Congress, by federal law passed in 1967, saw fit under Article 1, Section 8 to do so, and despite periodic Republican attacks on that decision, has continued to fund it uninterruptedly.

Why is that so hard for you to understand?

The funding and oversight of the CPB is set up under federal law to protect against those sorts of abuses, and it has always functioned properly.

Its not the Democrats who fear accurate reporting or an informed electorate.

it is not hard for me at all; and I am not the one spinning away like you are

why is it so hard for you to understand we no longer have the money to fund fringe expenditures?

PBS is a fringe expenditure.....plenty more to follow with cuts.

Defense should be the very last thing cut; but does need a talented CEO to compress the costs of defense.

our entire federal spending needs cut in half; and a balanced budget put in place.

No. Accurate reporting by independent professional journalists who fully understand that their job is to investigate and report to the public whatever facts they find regarding matters of societal importance, regardless who may possess political power at the time.

Like what's been provided to the American public by PBS for forty five years.

I figure a couple of the Hersheys are attorneys. Probate attorneys, bankruptcy attorneys and payee attorneys. You know, the kind that work out of their homes, stealing from the decease's estate/family, the mentally challenged and those who are desperately trying to save their credit lives. Stealing and cooking the books is so common to them, that the idea of NOT spending twice what you take in is foreign to them. Of course, they love the Obama lib/dem agenda. It feeds their secular souls.

Labor Union VS Workers Right to Work for Fewer Wages than Cost of Living:

It costs Stockholders, corporations, farmers, businesses, outsourcer sweatshops, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organizations and Churches nothing; to comply with USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demanding every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit. This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit. And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

The majority of 53% of US the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the 47% nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine; Successfully elects President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members.

President, the Justices they appoint, and Elected Officials hold Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.

To fund Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

Pay sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. That gets only product or service.

Needed to measure and maintain the strength and growth of this UNAFFORDABLE economy and distribute money Human Beings cannot digest, burn in internal combustion engines, or burn to heat and cool their American Dream. Into OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders portfolios.

Defying USA Labor Law, the Constitution, and Realities demands is bankrupting USA. Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; Makes funding schools IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren's children life UNAFFORDABLE.

America’s grandchildren’s children cannot pay Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt; with the $7.25 per hour Government mandated labor wage in a hundred million years.

You don't understand what the man is saying. I think Duke's point is that if the Right was interested AT ALL in actually trimming the deficit, rather than focus solely on a tiny little poltical football (PBS) they would agree to cut away at the massive waste in the DOD. But they won't because that is where their bread is buttered. That is where their rich friends continue to get richer. So instead of focusing on real savings that could help the country, they roll out Big Bird to get you guys all worked up. They will do anything to keep the little people fighting among themselves while they suck the government dry.
No, what Duke said is that if you don't want to stuff cash in Big Bird's feathers, you're a racist.

He also said that it's more important to weaken our military than weaken our liberal broadcast stations. We know you liberals have your priorities.

They know all about the military. They are experts. They read left-wing opinion pieces and that's how they come to the conclusion of what the military needs or wants. And of course, we can't forget the conspiracy of Republican taking care of their buddies.
